Ruta restaurant with traditional Ukrainian cuisine opened in Washington (USA). Guests can try classic borscht, Kiev cutlet and other Ukrainian dishes.

The well-known chef Dmitry Martsenyuk has become the founder of the restaurant. It's said on the page of the restaurant Ruta on Facebook (to see the photo, scroll to the end of the page).

According to the founders of the restaurant, this name was chosen for a reason. Ruta is not just a beautiful word, but also a beautiful flower from the ancient Ukrainian myths and legends. Chef Martsenyuk has long promoted Ukrainian cuisine in the United States. For more than 12 years, he was the chef of the legendary Ukrainian restaurant Veselka in New York City.

In "Ruta" told that in the first week of work in the test mode, the institution was very crowded with visitors, so not even everyone could get a reservation.

Guests of the restaurant can try traditional Ukrainian borscht with pampushkas, vinaigrette, tsvikly of boiled table beets, horseradish and spices.


The restaurant menu also includes potato deny, dumplings with various fillings, stuffed cabbage rolls, mushrooms, noodles and different kinds of meat. The traditional Kyiv-style cutlets are not left out.


Ruta Restaurant is located in the heart of D.C. Nearby are the city's most important landmarks. The Capitol, Lincoln Park and other places of interest in Washington are just a mile away.


We remind, in 2022 at the 5th extraordinary meeting of the Intergovernmental Committee for the Safeguarding of Intangible Cultural Heritage the element "The culture of cooking Ukrainian borscht" was included in the List of Intangible Cultural Heritage, which requires immediate protection. Thus, the dish was officially recognized as Ukrainian, and not Russian.
